The LFRSD is pleased to announce the start of spring grading operations. Work was started on Monday, May 08, 2017 and is being performed by General Excavation Inc., (GEI) of Warrenton, Va., with the assistance of Warren County crews. According to Mr. Bob Childress, Deputy County Administrator all roadways within the District will be heavy machine graded with a motor grader, high shoulders cut down where needed, roadway drainage ditches cleaned out and re-established, and fresh stone placed as needed. Where possible, roadway and private entrance pipes will be opened.
Proper roadway grading and ditching is essential to maintain drainage and a smooth riding surface. Currently many roadways throughout the District are rutted and full of potholes due to improper drainage. Moisture in the roadways is needed to perform the grading operations. The soaking rains we received late last week allowed us to begin operations which will continue as moisture allows. If conditions dry out, we will halt operations until we receive additional rainfall. The grading operations will necessitate men and equipment within the travel portions of the roadway, temporarily stopping traffic. Residents are asked to be mindful of these operations and use extreme caution when traveling through our work zones.
